WELCOME TO MOTCOMBE SCHOOL
All the Children take part in an Enrichment Day and become our Leaders of Learning. This gives them the opportunity to use their expertise to enhance the learning for their classmates in that area of the curriculum.
We had a highly successful Science Enrichment Day for 13 children this week.
Please go to our Enrichment Day tab to see more of what we have been learning!
“Motcombe Infant School is prized by parents and carers”. – Ofsted – January 2018
This is a happy infant school where children flourish both academically and in their personal development.
“Pupils enjoy working, playing and celebrating together. This strong sense of community shines through in everyday school life”. Ofsted – January 2018
Children engage in work that is exciting, challenging and fulfilling. Children at Motcombe are involved in meaningful discussions about their achievements and in purposeful plans, which ensure a curriculum that is matched to each child’s needs and interests.
We Keep Children Safe at Motcombe through our rigourous safeguarding procedures
“Your effective procedures to keep children safe provide a strong safeguarding culture at Motcombe. For instance, the school’s single central record of employment checks on staff is thorough and accurate. The pre-employment checks you make and the rigorous practice you employ when recruiting new staff and volunteers demonstrate a firm commitment to keeping children safe. Leaders have ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose.
You provide appropriate training to ensure that staff know what actions to take to protect children from harm. You work hard with senior leaders to continually strengthen staff members’ vigilance in safeguarding children. When necessary, you do not shy away from challenging parents and carers to address better the welfare needs of their children. You work very closely with other child-protection professionals, such as social services and the police, to protect children from harm. – Ofsted – January 2018
